Starfish Construction Group is delighted to welcome James Rooney

The appointment of James; with his experience and network to our Business Development Unit will further enhance our company standing and assist in increasing both the market's awareness of our service value and project turnover development within the Scottish Region.

James took the time to let us know a little about him, his journey to here and his thoughts on joining Starfish Construction Group.

After finishing High School, I lived in America for several years. During my time studying at university, I attained a BSc Honours Degree. I was also fortunate enough to play golf for the university.

Following my studies and upon returning to Scotland in 2014, I had various work roles and positions, before joining Moy Materials, a flat roof waterproofing supplier. In my position at Moy Materials, it was my remit to develop client relationships, throughout Scotland, as their Area Technical Manager, providing product and installation advice to the roofing industry.

After three years in this role, I was promoted to UK Sales Manager, managing several Area Technical Managers and Field Technicians, which covered an area from the North of Scotland to Sheffield. My role was to develop new clients along with managing and training the current staff as well as new employees joining the technical sales division.

My time at Moy Materials was very successful. Customer base and relationships increased, as well as the development of the organisation and people, having excellent growth.

I enjoyed my time at Moy; however, I'm ambitious and felt that the time was right to look for a new challenge. Following my departure from Moy, I was approached by Starfish Construction Group and the opportunity for career advancement, was too good to turn down.

I am excited about joining such an energetic and expanding organisation. The planned strategy and growth of the company is very well structured and is one of the reasons I was keen to join and play my part in the future.

I'm a keen golfer, although I've not managed to play as much as I would like over the last few years, so hopefully, some of my new colleagues will show me where I am going wrong! I am also passionate about music and have regularly enjoyed some session music for numerous bands and artists around Glasgow and the central belt.

I hope within my role at Starfish Construction Group, our paths cross, and I look forward to meeting and working with you all.
